Korroflex has launched the Korrobond 90 backing compound to improve crusher performance in low temperature
Use of effective crusher backing compounds and release agents is critical to enhancing the life of crushing equipment used in the quarrying industry, according to ITW Korroflex. The company has said that impact and shock vibrations can cause significant damage when in service unless the right compound is used for the climatic conditions.
In response to the need for materials to suit the colder European climate, Korroflex has developed the Korrobond 90 backing compound to cure and perform well at very low ambient temperatures. The product is a polyurethane-based crusher backing product and when cured produces a tough flexible backing for cone and gyratory crushers. It requires no pre-heating and pours at temperatures as low as 00C.
According to Korroflex, the solvent-free product gives good compressive and flexural strength, minimal shrinkage and will provide the same impact strength as white metal.
